Does anyone know if goat milk causes problems too? I bought some and put a teeny tiny amount in my tea, but then got scared and only had a sip. Lol. I just don't want to upset his tummy again.
My Ped told me to avoid goat milk too because its still a foreign protein. My daughter is allergic to milk and soy and takes pepsid everyday for her gerd but her milk allergy in severe and even cross contamination upsets her. Maybe check with your Ped or a LC. I know Wic told me that might be able to add back some dairy or goats cheese when the baby was about ten months for for now to steer clear. I miss milk too but you know what I don't think my body does. My skin has cleared up and my chronic constipation is resolving itself. I'm actually considering staying dairy free forever lol. They sell coconut yogurt but I haven't tried it bc it's pricy but my whole family is loving the almond milk. Maybe you could try that in your tea.

Re: Dairy Elimination

All three of my kids had milk allergies- the first two had blood in their poop and the third started out really gassy and fussy and then had the tell tale blood.

I love to bake, so I would substitute with soy milk and Earth Balance buttery spread (I bought it at Whole Foods). Also, vegetable shortening is great- I would use it for chocolate chip cookies and would use dairy free chocolate chips. My favorite dairy free recipe was Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls- I used soy milk and non-dairy spread and didn't make the frosting because I don;t like frosting. They are delicious!

Looking back I'm sure my older kids were like this. I had colicky babies who never slept anywhere but on me for more than 5 minutes.
I finally figured it out with our number 3 because he was vomiting huge amounts all the time.

When I cut dairy not only did he stop vomiting but I had a different baby! He no longer screamed for 2 hours every night. He was content and he actually slept other than on me.

Number 4 I was prepared for the same thing but she is much worse. Before a Ted and cloth her bum was a bloody rash for. The first 4 weeks of her life. If I accidentally eat something she gets sores that bleed and rash all over. She cries and won't sleep. Doing a Ted also identified soy, nuts, oats,eggs,and beef.

Just curious. When you cut dairy did you cut all dairy?
There is dairy in just about everything and it takes up to 3 weeks to leave your systems.

Even the smallest amount of whey or milk products can cause a problem

I gave up ALL dairy. Even things with whey. I had to buy my food at whole foods in the dairy free section. If it had the slightest of caesin or whey in it DS would get excema and gass so bad.

I also gave up absolutely all dairy. My pediatrician gave me a list of thirty or so names that mean milk product to avoid. Some of them are obvious like whey or butter but others like sodium caseinate you need to learn if you're going to go completely dairy free. For me my daughter has a severe allergy. She had visible blood in her stool, vomiting, wheezing and skin rashes so it was imperative that I cut out all hidden dairy as well.

Re: Dairy Elimination

At some point were your babies able to tolerate dairy while still BFing? I already eliminate gluten and meat from my diet and adding dairy to this seems restrictive if it is for the whole BFing term.

Both my kiddos are sensitive to dairy. Poor DD was a HUGE spitter until I figured out what was causing it. Luckily I had that experience so when DS started spitting up (+ blood) I knew what to do. I am able to eat cheese, but no milk, ice cream or yogurt. I luckily don't have to watch labels as closely as many of the other posters (though I try to avoid anything labeled with dairy).

DD is almost 3 and is still sensitive to dairy. She can do cheese, and is fine with the occasional serving of ice cream or yogurt, but if she has more servings in a row she gets hives and bloody stool. I'm still holding on to hope that she'll outgrow it!

No - my baby had to be away from dairy the whole time I nursed. It was restricting but it had to be done for him to nurse.
